Alpha Process Controls has added a new fall arrest system (FAS) to its ship-to-ship LNG transfer technology. 

The new braked, cable-activated STS and emergency STS arrestor systems will complement Alpha’s existing package of ship-to-ship and ship-to-jetty transfer equipment, which includes emergency-release collar (ERC) couplings, manifold reducers, hose saddles and flexible hoses, the company said in a statement on Monday.

The primary function of the FAS is to control the descent of the split ERC and flexible hose assembly as it is guided by the hose saddles over the side of the vessel and into the sea.

Alpha Process Controls said the new system enables it LNG STS transfer technology to be used in any climate conditions, from arctic to tropical.
